Missouri Southern State University Director of Athletics Jared Bruggeman has announced the selection of Dwight Burgess as its new head women’s soccer coach. He begins his duties officially at Southern on August 15.

Burgess, a veteran of nearly 30 years in coaching, has spent the past ten years as both the men’s and women’s soccer coach at Capital University in Ohio. He coached the men from 2000-2009, and the women from 2002-2009.

“We’re very excited to have coach Burgess on our staff,” Bruggeman said. “He brings in a wealth of experience and talent and I have no doubt that he can continue the success that our women’s soccer program has had. I would also like to thank the efforts of the search committee. They worked hard, and under short notice, came through splendidly”

“I’m absolutely elated for the opportunity,” Burgess said. “I had ten great years at Capital and was very happy with what we accomplished, but felt it was time that I move on. It was late in the year and didn’t know what was out there, but was intrigued by the opportunity at Southern.”

“During the course of the interview process, I had a chance to spend some time with some current players and was even more drawn to the job and intrigued with their contagious excitement. I am looking forward to being a part of the tradition and being competitive in a very tough conference.”

Burgess turned around a struggling Capital men’s program that had in the previous seven seasons went 12-112-2 overall and just 1-62 in the Ohio Athletic Conference. The Crusaders men went 97-84-16 overall in Burgess’ tenure and 42-42-6 in the OAC, while he led the women to an 89-61-17 overall mark and 45-21-6 record in conference action.

Burgess’ men’s team won the OAC Conference title in November and he also had applied in January to be a member of the NCAA Rules Committee, with a September 2010 opening. In addition, Burgess is known as the “Voice of TheCrew” where he works as a color analyst. According to a Columbus OH sportswriter, Burgess will work MLS games “as much as possible.” via @smitchcd

Bailey Pesek and Taylor Stamper at Arrowhead Stadium

We Were Part Of The Record Soccer Crowd In Kansas City!

A pair of Nixa Lady Eagles were fortunate enough to attend the recent Manchester United game against the KC Wizards last Sunday. They share a picture of their visit and thoughts on the soccer adventure.

Bailey says: Having the opportunity to see Manchester United play in the United States doesn’t happen every day. When my father told me he had tickets to the match with the Wizards, I was soooo happy. It was exciting to actually watch the big names like Giggs, Berbatov, Scholes and to see how European clubs begin their warm-ups to their field positioning and how different they are from American soccer. I certainly learned some things. I hope to see more events like this no doubt !

Taylor says: I went to the Kansas City Wizards vs Manchester United soccer game with my family & friends and we had a great time! The new Arrowhead Stadium was awesome and this was the first event to be held in the new stadium, and there were over 52,000 people there for the game!! It was cool to see the players from Man U and I had a great time watching the game. This is the 2nd professional soccer game that I have went to and I hope I can go to more!!

The photo was taken on 7-25-2010 during the Manchester United vs KC Wizards match in KC at Arrowhead stadium. It is one of 4 matches of Manchester United’s North American tour. Manchester United is a Premier English football club from Manchester England. Bailey Pesek ( Missouri Elite FC ) on left and Taylor Stamper ( Springfield Soccer Club ) on right are both members of Nixa HS Soccer.

On a related note, at least one British paper is impressed with the soccer spirit they found in the Midwest. Check out Wizards left us spellbound in Kansas City in the Daily Mail.escort uae

From the St Louis Globe Democrat: Chris Schuler, a 22-year-old former All-America defender at Creighton University, has been loaned to AC St. Louis by Real Salt Lake of Major League Soccer. Schuler will be with AC for at least four games, starting with Wednesday night’s match in Montreal.

The 6-foot-4, 185-pound Schuler was born in St. Louis and grew up in Aurora, Ill. He red-shirted his freshman season at Indiana University before transferring to Creighton, where he played for former Saint Louis University coach Bob Warming. Schuler made the All-Missouri Valley Conference team three times. A third-round selection in the 2010 MLS draft, Schuler has not appeared in any of Real Salt Lake’s games.

Note: Shuler’s father Chris is a Springfield referee and his cousin’s include Michael (Kickapoo/Missouri State) and Tyler Bennett (Kickapoo/Oglethorpe), both Springfield SC players.

Although with a record of 3-9-4 and in last place in the NASL Conference of the Division 2 Pro League, AC is still in the running for a playoff berth with 14 matches to go. The team lost to Montreal last Wednesday night, 0-3 with Shuler starting and playing the whole game. The team followed that up with a 1-0 win over Baltimore on Saturday with Shuler playing the entire match. AC St Louis is hosting the Portland Timbers this evening.what are female escorts
